Run time 53:04
Ctephin is a found-sound/ambient/noise group from Oklahoma. They were formed in 2003 by the core family group of StF, Aedria and Kaylan Bright. Their music is influenced by the sounds of their surroundings and the pure amount of energy that their core puts out. StF spent most of his youth in the Oakland, CA experimental noise scene working with the groups A Limbic System and The Non-Whites. An extremely prolific band, Ctephin has released over 30 albums and collaborated with a number of artists including Big City Orchestra, Rabbit Girls, GX Jupitter-Larsen, The Gray Field Recordings, Kenji Siratori and Ghoul Detail. Aedria was a featured artist on the Ubuibi compilation ‘Women Take Back the Noise’ which also featured other great artists such as Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nina Pixie.

The intention of Okkulth releases is that they are dubbed onto a cassette. These songs will fit onto two sides of a C60 tape. It is recommended that you use the PDF file to print the artwork. In the unlikely event that you want to burn a CDR, you can use either the low-resolution thumbnail file or freely alter the artwork provided in the BMP image.
